Welcome to our Access & Outreach homepage. The Oxford Law Faculty is committed to widening its intake of students from all backgrounds. We provide a network of support systems and outreach schemes targeted at applicants from low income backgrounds, first generation students, and schools with a low history of progression to Oxford.

The Faculty of Law is committed to attracting the strongest students to study, regardless of a candidate’s background.  In order to achieve this aim, we host range of activities designed to inform, support and encourage applications from widest possible pool.  

Within the Faculty we offer outreach programmes such our Open Days, Summer School and Mock Trials while working with the University to offer other programmes such as UNIQ and Opportunity Oxford.   Details of these programmes are found on our Summer Schools and programme pages

The University of Oxford now offers the opportunity for schools and colleges to develop an ongoing relationship with Colleges at the University to simplify communication between UK Schools and the University as an ongoing commitment to engage in schools.  The programme pairs colleges with specific UK regional Local Authorities, to allow the University to get to know schools and colleges in specific regions better, but also give schools and colleges a more personal and direct way of staying in touch with the University.  For further information on pairing please visit the Link Colleges pages on the University of Oxford website. 

Our Access & Outreach Programmes: In Students' Words

The national conference was amazing! So much hard work was put into it which really showed through the quality of all the workshops, I learnt so much and developed my passion for studying law even more. It also gave me the opportunity to bond with the people in my cohort and I feel as though I have some really great friends!

Very helpful in discussing applications, colleges, and interviews, whilst also great fun and very interactive.

Amazing and very useful. Determined to come to Oxford.
